Chapter 1088: A Rat In A Hole (1)
When Meng Fusheng saw that the two mountain peaks flanking the entrance of the Free Valley had been blown to smithereens, he narrowed his eyes slightly.
“Boss, what do we do now?”
Meng Fusheng calmed himself. He looked through the flying dust at the army of the Kingdom of the Sacred Dragon. At that moment, the army from the Kingdom of the Sacred Dragon was advancing again, and there was nowhere to hide. Meng Fusheng and the others would be hard pressed to prevent their attack.
“Allow them to enter the valley.” Meng Fusheng’s eyes flashed and his lips curved into a faint, icy smile.
What was the Kingdom of the Sacred Dragon to them?
If they dared to enter the Free Valley, they would not return!
Meng Fusheng immediately led the members of the Blood Tribe to retreat to the Free Valley. The army from the Kingdom of the Sacred Dragon did not seem to detect any of this.
The interior of the Free Valley was spacious. Once the army from the Kingdom of the Sacred Dragon passed through the narrow entrance, they saw a boundless wilderness. Afar were broken down ruins that showed no sign of life. As they swept their eyes over it, they could not even see even a ghost, much less the enemy.
“What on earth is the Kingdom of Hua Xia thinking? We have arrived, but there is still no sign of them? Could they really have given up without a fight?” The more Master Yue pondered the present situation, the stranger he felt it was. The exploding talismans that the war horses had detonated previously was the only form of attack they had seen from the Kingdom of Hua Xia. In fact, they had not seen a single soldier from the Kingdom of Hua Xia.
The formidable array of eight hundred thousand men had entered the Free Valley, but after half a day, they had yet to see even the shadow of their enemy. They could not help but feel suspicious.
Hu Na’s gaze swept across the Free Valley before him. To the outside world, the Free Valley was shrouded in mystery. Earlier, when the tactical formations in the Free Valley had annihilated enormous armies, all the countries had subconsciously overlooked this place. If the spies from the Kingdom of the Sacred Dragon had not learnt from the Kingdom of Fu Xiang that the tactical formations in the Free Valley could no longer be activated, they would not have attacked it so readily.
However, they could not comprehend the present situation.
It was as if the Kingdom of Hua Xia had not made any preparations to meet the battle. Even the cunning and devious Hu Na could not immediately guess what Ji Fengyan was up to. He could only order the troops to gather and ensure that their military strength was concentrated. He used the method of sending out the war horses to slowly test the road ahead of them.
However, after a long time, the war horses still had discovered nothing peculiar about the road ahead. The entire Free Valley presented itself in a completely defenseless state.
The strange circumstances the army from the Kingdom of the Sacred Dragon—who was prepared for a major battle—encountered, puzzled them. They had been on their guard after the exploding talismans, but now faced with the peaceful surroundings, they slowly let their guard down.
The army from the Kingdom of the Sacred Dragon soon passed through what looked like a ruined city.
The city was in such poor condition that it was unable to hide anyone. A glance showed only broken walls and ruins.
However, Hu Na was still cautious. He ordered men to investigate the situation in the city and ensured that no one was hiding in ambush there before continuing.
However, what Hu Na and the others did not know was that the city they had just investigated hid a secret tunnel that was difficult to detect. Meng Fusheng and the others who had just retreated from the entrance of the Free Valley were now hidden in the tunnel. They looked through the peepholes and saw every movement of the Kingdom of the Sacred Dragon. After the Kingdom of the Sacred Dragon left, they immediately returned to the entrance of the Free Valley, and once again buried a new batch of exploding talismans in the direction of the entrance!
